Chieko Shinonome (東雲 千絵子, Shinonome Chieko?) is a supporting character in the Joukamachi no Dandelion series. She is the wife of Daigorou Shinonome, the mother of Satsuki Sakurada and the grandmother of the nine Sakurada siblings.
Chieko is a full-bodied woman with a friendly-looking face and quite dark-colored hair, which is seen being tied to a braid.
Chieko is a friendly woman who cares for her family. She was happy to see Satsuki Sakurada and her grandchildren again after a long time. She seems to be proud of her grandchildren, and especially Misaki Sakurada seems to be fond of Chieko.
Chieko is first seen when the Sakurada family decided to visit the Shinonome household on New Years, where Chieko and Daigorou Shinonome, as well as their children already were (Kanna Shinonome excluded). Upon seeing Haruka Sakurada and Misaki Sakurada, she became happy to see them and Misaki happily hugged her grandmother. Chieko then told "Misaki" than she since she was a girl, she had to put on a little more meat. In reality, it was Haruka whom Chieko had mistaken Misaki for.
- The name Chieko means "thousand" (千) (chi), "picture, painting" (絵) (e) and "child" (子) (ko).
- Chieko tends to confuse people with each other as she accidentally mistook Haruka Sakurada for Misaki Sakurada once.
